12-14 by the time we play Boston or we can just pack it in already.
We're past 'it's early' and now into 'just win' mode.

for sure. There's so much pressure on this organization right now.

Angels should be concerned about their pitching too. Jared Weaver's velocity is trending downwards. Tommy Hanson looks like a bust. CJ Wilson was an overrated free agent signing. Ryan Madson seems like he can't get off the DL. Jason Vargas for Kendrys Morales was a bad trade, IMO.

YOu can bet that management and ownership are panicking even if they're making out like they're not.

With about 140 games left? Take a look at the 1992 team and where they were at this point. If i'm not mistaken they struggle early. A good week and we're back on track. If this keeps up for the next 2-3 weeks then we're in trouble. I will say this though, i'm not impressed with this lineup, especially now that Reyes is out. I said it at the begining of the season that the bottom half of the lineup is pretty bad. And Bautista better wake the fuck up.


This team is hitting .202 with runners in scoring position.

I don't think it is a excuse, as you said games count the same now or in August. I think what it means, is there is still time for the team to figure it out and go on a hot streak. One great month and the Blue Jays are right back in it, that is baseball for you. It is early in the season and still time for them to come together. The difference is losing now will add more pressure to win in June, July, August, etc.

May will be a big month for the Blue Jays. They have 29 games in May, and 19 of them are against division rivals. If Blue Jays can have a 18-11 May, they're right back into the race going into the Summer.

You never want to lose early, but you can't panic just yet.

You know you're in trouble when Lind is the number 2 hitter in the lineup

Unlike other teams we don't have an impact player in the minors that will come halfway though the season to provide a spark. unless the Jays make a midseason trade.

Does Dickey ever smile? Even before the season started the guy never looks happy.
